Polymer nanocoatings are widely used outdoor environment because the excellent properties. The addition of nanoparticles can improve performance properties including mechanical, electrical, chemical and ultraviolet resistance. However, because polymer in coating are susceptible to degradation [...]

Using single particle ICP-MS as a tool for understanding metallonanoparticles transformation during nanotoxicity assays

, , , , , ,
The work presented will establish a method for employing SP-ICP-MS toward the characterization of ENPs following their exposure to a model organism, C. elegans. Sample preparation, SP-ICP-MS analysis, data processing, particulate transport efficiency evaluation, and [...]
